The Towpath Volunteers Fife & Drum Corps

The Towpath Volunteers Fife & Drum Corps
If you think the 37 years that The Towpath Volunteers have been a fife and drum corps is a long time, how would you feel about 100 years? Well, the Camden Continentals have been around for 165 years and are one of the most respected groups in the country. Led by a powerful drum section, everyone knows when they are coming down the street, long before they get there! Always a crowd pleaser, this group is well worth seeing whenever possible.

The relationship with Towpath goes back several decades. Over the years, the Continentals have helped Towpath grow though various ways.

The Towpath Volunteers are proud to have the Camden Continentals Fife and Drum Corps as part of the 2015 World Fife and Drum Friendship Festival.

History

The Camden Continentals did not actually begin in Camden. In 1850, an ancestor of the current corps director Jeff Waterman, Alanson White organized a fife and drum corps in Taberg, NY. The Corps was active in Civil War drills and trained Army units. In high demand in their time, the Taberg Fife and Drum Corps played at political rallies and patriotic celebrations, including the inauguration of President Ulysses S. Grant.

In 1947, the Corps moved to Camden and became the Camden Continentals and is the only fife and drum corps in Central New York. The Camden Continentals last hosted the National Fife and Drum Muster in 1992 and will be hosting this event again in 2016.
